Really interesting article here from a couple of perspectives. First, it is a reminder that slavery is present in the world and it isn’t a far off problem. Much of what we take for granted is made by slaves,
Furthermore, the article points to an interesting app that will help you to see the connection between your life and the life of exploited, enslaved workers elsewhere in the world. The app doesn’t just give you the bad news, it takes a complexity approach to the problem, and it holds promise.
And third, and this is a kind of strange take perhaps, this app is good news for reminding us both of the interconnection we have between human beings on earth, and for reminding us that we are all indeed part of the problem of slavery. And, as I have been recently quoting Einstein via Adam Kahane “if you are not part of the problem, you cannot be part of the solution.” thins like this are useful for taking an honest reckoning with the ways in which we are connected to the problems we despise. That is the first step to becoming a part of the solution.
